Don’t let the spoken word intro to the first song fool you – this is brutal death/doom metal. Of course, that is pretty obvious from the front cover. Also, don’t let the upside down cross on the front cover fool you as well – it is a reference to the martyrdom of Peter, who was crucified upside down. Apparently there was some controversy about that back in the day. They were also looking for a drummer when this was recorded – they thank someone named Chris for playing drums here, but don’t give a last name. It seems they did not release anything else until 2006’s Dissention.
